Do Not Be Afraid To Take Time Off

Hi again everyone,

I just wanted to talk about the importance of taking time off from the gym and the rewards you can get from doing this.

Being around a lot of bodybuilders they always seem to be training day after day, week after week, and month after month. I will talk about the importance of training less frequetly but I can save that topic for another blog. These people never really take time off to let there minds and body heal.

If someone is training with the right intensity then they would need to take off from training every eight to ten weeks. Your muscles will grow when recuperating out of the gym. When you return back to the gym you will notice instantly that you will have so much more intensity but above all you will have more mental energy.

As you enter the second week back after taking time off you will notice your training will go to a whole new level. You will notice insane pumps in your muscles but don't just take my word for it, try it for yourself. If you've trained hard, I mean really hard then you deserve the break. You have earned it.

Until next time.............

Follow your bliss!!

Thanks for the post! This is a topic that doesn't get touched too often. How long do you recommend the rest period last? 1 week or more?
